for me, i have always kind of viewed things differently and played things differently not in a pretty typical way. 6'5", 245 pounds built like a linebacker and moves like a running back, a deadly combination for defenses. >> hopefully, i get the better end of the stick on sunday. >> this is newton's first superbowl and peyton manning's fourth and challenging season for the 18 year veteran. >> mid-season manning benched for poor plays and injuries. now labeled the comeback kid. >> different challenges and felt i had a piece of it the whole time. >> a month away from age 40 manning hasn't decided if he will hang up his cleats and will have to deal with a possible nfl investigation linking him to a hugh man growth hormone. >> i welcome that investigation

up. the coffee bean starbucks buys are 33% cheaper it doesn't mean we will pay less for frappuccino. you can cut your coffee budget without cutting the caffeine buzz. first, brew at home. whole beans tend to be cheaper than ground coffee and buy in bulk for bigger savings. if you can't give up the daily coffee shop ritual look into the loyalty programs. they get free coffee refills and many places offer a small cup. >> dan: how about a free bagel to go with the coffee to celebrate 33 years in business. free bagels to customers. you do have to have a coupon to get the bagels and sign occupy brewinger's web site. >> cool. radar.
>> denise: well, the first votes have been cast for the race for president and the state of iowa delivered quit a few surprises. >> dan: ryan nobles is our guru in iowa with results with winners and maybe a little bit of the losers. >> reporter: yeah, dan, i know you spent a lot of time in iowa and will you admit it was a crazy night from the razor thin margin in the democratic race and ted cruz race and surge of marco rubio and most especially the stunning defeat of donald trump.
showdown in new hampshire. as morning dawned in new hampshire presidential candidates were ready to move on from iowa. >> i am so thrilled i am coming to new hampshire after winning iowa! >> reporter: the iowa democratic party declared hillary clinton the winner after vote totals show her leading bernie sanders by less than 1 percentage point. clinton hopes a victory builds momentum to break into sanders lead in new hampshire. on the republican side a three-man race is emerging headlined by ted cruz who defied expectations and won iowa despite polls showing donald trump ahead. >> tonight is a victory for courageous conservatives across iowa and all across this great nation. >> cruz' margin of victory was slim and so was marco rubio. the florida senator is laying the ground work to become the alternative to cruz and trump. >> can i grow the conservatives.
who have not voted for us before. >> reporter: while cruz and rubio are feeling confident donald trump is not going away leading polls in new hampshire and during a tweet he warned he is not finished yet, a promise he made to voters monday night. >> we have a poll, 28 points ahead. new hampshire, we love new hampshire and we love south carolina. >> reporter: every candidate staking ground as the race for president is just getting started. >> reporter: there's a lot made about marco rubio's attempt to consolidate support and three governors didn't spend much time in iowa in new hampshire, john kasich, chris christie and jeb bush. their hoping to create a new narrative coming out of this race when the new hampshire folks go to vote next tuesday. dan and denise. >> dan: it is not often a
sounds like a victory speech. i want to talk about donald trump, though. i wonder how much of this was, when you answer the phone and people are taking polls it is easy to say i support trump and i will vote for donald trump. but when it came time to step forward, stand up and put your name in the box, how many people backed away and said i can't see trump being president. do you think that had an impact last night? >> reporter: we are at a rubio rally sunday and we talked to a couple bullish on trump and heard marco rubio speak and kinda changed their minds. as you know, dan, people in iowa wait until the last minute to make a final decision. what folks on the ground are saying, it was an enormous difference in the organization and the cruz campaign and organization on the trump campaign. trump tried to come into iowa
campaign hallmarked by big rallies and try to get as much earned media as much as possible and did small ball. he did a lot of events and shook a lot of hands and talked to a lot of people and made sure he made contact with each of the voters and got them to the caucus sites on monday night and that was the reality of it. there was a lot of people who would answer the phone and support trump and how many would show up. it was clear last night the supporters of cruz and rubio outperformed what the polls were telling us. >> denise: how about supporters for bernie sanders and hillary clinton. we have never seen a race like this in iowa. it was historic. now what? i know they will be on cnn tomorrow night, right? >> reporter: yeah, that's right. the first time they will have a town hall just sanders and clinton and martin o'malley bowing out last night. the margin between the two is incredible.
the numbers still coming in. in fact, some of the caucus they had to actually flip a coin to decide who would get the majority of the delegates because the race was so close. the question is was it enough for bernie sanders? he really needed a significant victory here i think to gain the momentum necessary to break into the leads in the states beyond new hampshire and no doubt sanders will raise a lot of money. if he can create a bigger margin of victory than what's expected in new hampshire is interesting. we know for sure this won't be handed to hillary clinton anymore. she will have to earn every single delegate in this democratic nomination. >> denise: absolutely ryan. thank you. we will see you tomorrow. >> dan: from iowa to new hampshire the granite state is a different challenge all together. new hampshire voters are viewed as more moderate and less religious as iowans and every candidate is there today. a preview of new hampshire is
>> denise: the candidates left iowa just in time. look at this. most of the state is under a blizzard warning. can you see what drivers are dealing with there. a lot of cars and trucks on the side of the road. can't deal with all that ice. the visibility down to almost nothing. the plows are having a tough time keeping up with the snow. >> dan: that would have had a major impact. 12 hours. if that showed up 12 hours earlier iowa caucuses get derailed. >> this morning blizzard-like conditions still and warm side of the system and we will not get much of that at all. thursday. we have an alert for rain and very windy conditions tonight. well. it is a high risk. after 7:00 more likely later this evening and overnight 40mile-an-hour wind gusts with this thing.

mortality and starting with infant sleep space is crucial. >> we want to make sure they have a crib at home or pack and play that doesn't have bumpers or fluffy stuff. we want a bare naked crib. >> according to the ohio department of health the buckeye state was 45 out of 50 in infant mortality meaning every babies per 1,000 die before turning one. city leaders and nonprofit groups are joining together to fight the statistic saying the problem should be treated like an emergency. health care professionals believe with education they can bring the rate down. they are starting the conversations before the baby is born and handing out these safe sleep sacks to parents. >> we give every patient one. to the homeless, so the infant is warm. >> reporter: the goal is to make sure every baby born at a chance at life.
mortalities obviously. some again, aren't preventible because of genetics. i would like to see those preventible ones just disappear. >> reporter: ohio's infant mortality rate went down between 2013 and 2014. but it is still above the national level. local leaders say if the entire community steps it up we can prevent many of those deaths. back to you. >> denise: all right, sia, thank you. a cincinnati police officer went above and beyond the call of duty when he found a 2-year-old boy wandering the street barefoot. the officer bought a coat, pants, shoes and fresh diapers and a picture on facebook shows the officer lying on the ground trying to help the boy take a nap. his mother was arrested for child abuse. the little boy is now staying with a relative. >> that's good work. >> denise: a lot of good cops do stuff out there every day no one sees.

he wants to rally as much ground support as they pulled off in iowa. >> were you surprised you won in iowa? >> no. i wasn't surprised. i was eck static ted cruz is the guy we have been praying for since ronald reagan >> reporter: marco rubio is using himself to position as mainstream republican candidate and one to clinch the general election. >> we need to unify the conservative movement and republican party and i can do that better than anyone running >> reporter: cruz is riding high off his win, the democrats have to duke it out in new hampshire. hillary clinton narrowly defeated bernie sanders and the closest iowa democratic caucus in history. >> we are in a fight to the finish. about whether or not we will build on the progress we have made or watch it get ripped away. >> we are in this together. >> bernie sanders called this a political revolution and plans
